As a sequel to [1] and [2], I present some recent progress on Bessel integrals $\int_0^{\infty}{\rmd u}\; uK_0(u)^{n}$, $\int_0^{\infty}{\rmd u}\; u^{3}K_0(u)^{n}$, … where the power of the integration variable is odd and where $n$, the Bessel weight, is a positive integer. Some of these integrals for weights n=3 and n=4 are known to be intimately related to the zeta numbers zeta(2) and zeta(3). Starting from a Feynman diagram inspired representation in terms of n dimensional multiple integrals on an infinite domain, one shows how to partially integrate to n-2 dimensional multiple integrals on a finite domain. In this process the Bessel integrals are shown to be periods. Interestingly enough, these « reduced » multiple integrals can be considered in parallel with some simple integral representations of zeta numbers. One also generalizes the construction of [2] on a particular sum of double nested Bessel integrals to a whole family of double nested integrals. Finally a strong PSLQ numerical evidence is shown to support a surprisingly simple expression of zeta(5) as a linear combination with rational coefficients of Bessel integrals of weight n= 8.
